Lenjo’s Bar in Pocahontas was burglarized early Monday morning and an investigation is underway by the Bond County Sheriff’s Department.

Chief Deputy Josh Hill stated video showed a masked subject broke a window to gain entry into the business. He added the subject appeared to be carrying a sledge hammer.

Five gambling machines were damaged and an undetermined amount of money was taken from four of them.
